Make way for the rapidly growing interior trend, Japandi, which is described as a mix of the modern-esque vibe of Scandi décor paired with the elegant Japanese style. Both of the trends work seamlessly together, with their simple lines and minimalistic essence, there’s no wonder why this is an emerging trend. This beautiful décor style can easily be brought into your home or commercial décor, read on to find out how to embrace it!
Bring Nature In
Both Japanese and Scandi interiors look to embrace natural beauty, and the perfect way to get an essence of this in your interior is by bringing the outdoors in. Think about adding plants into your décor; not only do they look beautiful, but plants circulate oxygen around the room, helping to uplift the mood.
As well as incorporating plants, Japandi interiors look to bring a tranquil sense; this can be done by focusing on raw materials, such as brass. Our lighting range utilises raw materials and allows you to bring a vintage edge into any room the lights are placed.

One of the main style points of Japandi is contrasting the darker tones of Japanese interiors with the lighter tones of the Scandi style. By contrasting colours, you have the ability to add depth to the room, creating something truly beautiful. Add some contrast into your interiors by opting for retro pendant lighting in our pewter and copper colours, our two-toned lights add the perfect contrast, being warm yet elegant.

Keep It Sleek
Less is most definitely more when it comes to Japandi. The idea of this interior trend is to create a calm and clean look and to do this; it’s essential to stick to clean lines. It’s about stripping interiors back and thinking about functionality and simplicity. Don’t overcrowd your interior, keep it minimalistic and select pieces which truly speak your personality.
Bringing bold colours together with the handcrafted pendants along with darker wood tones, the simple lines in this dining room interior rings true to the Japandi trend.

Texture It Up
The foundations of the room should be kept clean and straightforward; however, textures will bring warmth and a sense of your personality into the room. The Japanese are known for adding beautiful patterns into their interiors, and Scandinavians are known for adding depth into their decors through accessories. Combine the two to create a seamless décor, to add texture into this simplistic bathroom interior; a patterned splashback was added to add depth – simple, elegant and beautiful!

Another way to add texture is by incorporating wall art, for the Japandi trend, it’s about selecting a few statement pieces to add texture to your walls.
